Rush Limbaugh, 1:48 PM, 5/22/13, “Amnesty Bill Not Supposed To Become Law”
LIMBAUGH: Amnesty bill is not supposed to become law. It’s supposed to die in the Senate. Ds then demonize Rs for not being friendly to Hispanics. That’s supposed to secure the House for the Dems in 2014.
America’s Newsroom, 10:35 AM, 5/22/13, Interviews McConnell
MACCALLUM: Is this bill coming out of this hearing something that you would agree to? Are you happy?
MCCONNELL: Undecided about the bill, but not the problem—border is insecure and we need to fix it, status quo is not acceptable. Undecided about the bill.
MACCALLUM: President has said immigration is important. A lot of people believe GOP will benefit from bill coming to Senate floor, would you bring bill like this to the floor?
MCCONNELL: Can’t fix the border unless you take some action, and this will be the only bill that will come to the Senate floor.
